OCC Jester Award - 2009
Roger Taylor sailed his engineless, junk-rigged Corribee MingMing fromScotlandto theArctic, and describes his adventures with video and words on his website www.thesimplesailor.com. Roger’s passion for basic and simple sailing is fascinating, and his stories make for great reading. My favourite is when he lost his drogue through chafe and decided to improvise with a B&Q sandbag sea anchor. He told me afterwards that Travis Perkins bags are far superior! Roger’s first book, Voyages of a Simple Sailor, is reviewed in Flying Fish 2010/1.
